The staff were immediately helpful and welcoming as soon as we arrived, and maintained this throughout our stay, clearly because that is just their nature, rather than an obligation. The recommended and thoroughly organised trip to the floating markets (long tour recommended) was absolutely brilliant. Definitely pay a little extra to have the English (or French) speaking student tour guide to join you as they help you become completely involved in the whole experience, rather than just being a spectator. It was fantastic to see how the country folk like in Vietnam, something that we felt had been missing during our exploration of the east coast.
The hotel is clean and modern, the city view rooms look superb (having sneaked a peek through an open door to an empty room!) but the windowless rooms are perfectly spacious and light.
The location couldn't be better, with both a day and night market on your doorstep and nice bars and restaurants close by too.
A perfect seemingly family run hotel that helps you to see, and experience, the best of Can Tho in a brilliant environment.

The day and night markets where the groceries and fresh food stalls are also a minute walk from the hotel. Hop pho which is 10 min walk away serves good western coffee. It was a fairly quiet road which was another plus for hotel.Exploring Can Tho is easy with scooter rental, bike rental, boat rental and bus ticket services available.
